OpenRouteService (http://www.openrouteservice.org - short ORS) - Is much more than a website with a route service for cars, pedestrians and bicycles based on Open Standards and Open Geodata. Several Location Based Services (LBS) created from OSM data are available, developed by Pascal Neis. For example (Neis 2008):
  • Route Service
  • Geocoder/Reverse Geocoder
  • Directory Service
  • Accessibility Analysis Service
  • Emergency Route Service

What can you do on ORS?

OpenRouteService.org is much more than only a routing service: it uses a wide range of services based on OSM data that also could be used in other applications and scenarios. Currently the following services have been implemented within the frame of OpenRouteService.org based on OSM data:

ORS Directory Service
  • The Directory Service is a service that provides access to an online directory to find the location of a specific or nearest place, product or service.
  • The Location Utility Service provides a Geocoder/Reverse Geocoder; the Geocoder transforms a description of a location, such as a place name, street address or postal code, into a normalized description of the location with a Point geometry.
ORS Route Service
  • The Route Service determines travel routes and navigation information according to diverse criteria. This has been realized for:
    • cars: fastest, shortest, recommended
    • several options to avoid tools, tunnels, etc.
    • same for heavy vehicles with many options
    • wheelchair routing (beta)
    • cars: use of realtime traffic (TMC), for GERMANY
    • bicycles (MTB, race bike, safest route...)
    • pedestrian
    • further extensions (particular options for different types of bicycles etc.) are planned or in work
ORS Accessibility Analysis Service
  • The Accessibility Analysis Service (AAS) calculates a polygon representing the area that is reachable within a certain time distance based on a street network around a given location.
ORS Emergency Route Service
  • In the Emergency Route Service you can specify areas that will be avoided by your route.
  • ...

Route Service Comparison Matrix

A comparison matrix is available at Routing/OnlineRouters#Route service comparison matrix

Evaluation of data fitness for routing

ORS hits, route requests and failures due to errors in street network over the course of time (Schmitz, Zipf & Neis (2008))
